The Chicago Architecture Biennial has announced the list of participants invited to contribute to the event’s second edition, which will be held from September 16 to January 7, 2018 in Chicago. More than 100 architecture firms and artists have been selected by 2017 artistic directors Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, founders of Los Angeles–based Johnston Marklee, to design exhibitions that will be displayed at the Chicago Cultural Center and throughout the city. “Our goal for the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial is to continue to build on the themes and ideas presented in the first edition,” explained Johnston and Lee. “We hope to examine, through the work of the chosen participants, the continuous engagement with questions of history and architecture as an evolutionary practice.” “The City of Chicago is proud to host new projects by architects, artists and designers from around the world with the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial,” commented Mayor Rahm Emanuel on the announcement. “We are pleased to announce another outstanding lineup of work and perspectives to build on the success of the inaugural 2015 edition. Not only will the breadth of work represented by designers from around the world showcase the future of architecture, but it will also further reinforce Chicago’s stature as a global city.” View more View full description
